PODCAST: Why can’t San Diego get a stadium deal done for the Chargers?

John Gennaro welcomes San Diego sports media member Jeff Dotseth to his podcast to talk about the history of the Chargers searching for a stadium solution in San Diego.

This morning I had Jeff Dotseth of “Dave & Jeff” fame on my podcast because I wanted to see if I could convince him that my “Plan for San Diego” is a good idea.

If I could convince him, then my thought process is that I could continue to view the San Diego Chargers leaving to become the Los Angeles Chargers (or Los Angeles Whatevers) could be viewed as positive thing in the history of San Diego sports.

You’ll have to listen to the podcast to find out if I was successful (there’s a few ads in the first 5-6 minutes, if you feel like skipping ahead), but you’ll want to listen either way to hear Dotseth’s incredible story of how and why the team’s 2007 plans to build a stadium in Oceanside were dashed.
